In order to fill out the profiler go to SURVEYS section and then you will see a box on the left that says take a profiler. Failure to fill out this profiler will mean that you will only see daily surveys or non-targeted surveys.
Let us know if you have any questions.

There are a lot of members that shop online frequently and find a lot of very good deals that are just unbelievable. I was thinking of making a contest or rewarding those who share deals with other members. For example if today Kohl’s is selling item X at 50% off and there is also a 20% off QR coupon not many members will know about this, but one member will. Would members be interested in sharing their great deals/finds on the blog? Of course it would need to be a merchant that QR has in the shopping section. If this merchant also has coupons I would edit the blog and add the coupons to maximize the savings and maybe even increase the % cash back rate. If a deal that someone posts is popular (other members place an order to buy this item or take advantage of this sale) this specific member gets some kind of a bonus. What you think about this? Are there QR shoppers who would participate in this? We would need more than one person to help us with this to make it possible.
UPDATED QUESTION: Do you all want to start this right away or wait until the QR blog comes out later in the week (I hope)
Here are the 10 $1 winners:
PLEASE EMAIL SUPPORT@QUICKREWARDS.NET TO CLAIM YOUR PRIZE
Let’s test a blog game to see how well it works. The object of the game is simple. Unscramble these 3 words and email your answers to email@example.com. The first 10 members to email us the correct answers to all 3 will receive $1 QR credit. We will post the winners on the blog once we get 10 correct responses.
Example: LASTA unscrambled is ATLAS
3 words to unscramble:
***YOU MAY TELL YOUR FRIENDS THE ANSWERS AS LONG AS IT'S OUTSIDE OUR BLOG.
Once the 10 members email us we will end this game and based on how popular it will be decide if we should continue with it or not.

A long time Quickrewards member is the area coordinator for Project Linus.
“Project Linus is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization. Our Mission is to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of NEW HOMEMADE WASHABLE blankets and quilts lovingly created by volunteer blanketeers. We also provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups to make blankets for hurting children. Many of our blanketeers cannot afford the costs of materials (fleece, yarn, fabric etc) so we provide this free to them through contributions to the San Jose Chapter of Project Linus.”
QuickRewards members can help Project Linus by donating their tokens (100,000 stacks) or cash balance ($1 stacks). Hopefully with everything we collect will allow Project Linus to give away a lot more blankets then they do now.

For those that don’t remember what it is here are all the details: Through the day we will randomly select 10+ offers in the SIGNUPS section. Each offer will give you a reward if you locate it ($0.01-$0.05) a click and up to 200% rate boost if you do it.
Let’s hope it works this time!
Here is the last set of winners. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim the prizes:
QuickyPot total: 87,162 tokens. The winners are:
Curlymmv 43,581 tokens
Sharcj 26,149 tokens
Amyk 17,433 tokens
Davids Cookie Tin winner: rames316
The QuickyPot will now be progressive. Instead of 3 winners every few weeks we will change the offer and divide the Quickypot among everyone. This way everyone wins! We also want to introduce: Wacky Rate Boost and Wacky Shopping Rate Boost. We will randomly boost rates of various offers and shopping merchants. Some boosts will be as high as 25-200%. The thing is that no one knows when these rates will end. We will keep changing them often.
Please let me know if you like the new idea or the old idea better. We will change it so that everyone is happy!

UPDATE: The instnat creditor is still not back to normal so it's ok that you are not seeing 3/17 surveys and 3/18 signups yet
2) Our click advertiser wants us to double the volume. 6 hour clicks will go back to hourly later today. Also look out for a new $0.01 Spiral Frog click.
3) We didn't double last month tokens yet. I hope we will this week. It's a long manual process so we are trying to make it automatic.
4) Why did my balance drop a bit today (this is only for about 100 members)
You saw a large unexpected increase to your account yesterday noon right? That is because some of the daily surveys you did on Friday or over the weekend credited multiple times for some reason. We ran a program to remove the duplicates.
QuickRewards has been around since 2002 and we only have 4 employees. 2 out of the 4 are really very active (programmer and myself) while other two help out with the Paypal and gift cards. Putting up daily trivia, guess my number game and emails is my task. Others don’t know how to do it. If I am sick or am away one day (Sunday/Monday I went away with my family and unfortunately we had no internet access) and don’t put up the trivia/game/send paid email that DOES NOT MEAN that QR is going down the drain. QuickRewards has gained over 25,000 new members within the last few months because of advertising. This was a huge surprise to us that we didn’t expect and now we have twice the emails to answer daily then before while once again I am doing all the emails myself with no one helping me. We don’t have the money to hire more employees at this time and basic things like this (no game or trivia or late response to emails) can happen from time to time. Most other rewards programs don’t respond to emails for days so if you don’t get your response within a few hours I always tell our members to just resend it again. Not seeing a game up, not seeing a response to an email within minutes/hours is not something that should be a large concern or mean that QR is going downhill.
Just writing this to let you all know that you should consider that we are still a tiny company even though we might look big because of the brand loyaly we gained over the years. We are growing daily, but until we have the financial resources to hire more people please be patient with us about things like one day the trivia is put up late or the game is late and so on. QuickRewards is not going downhill and we are growing stronger and stronger everyday.
We got a huge contract today with an advertiser that no one else has and I can't wait until we announce them to you soon. It will be a new weekly activity for everyone to participate in.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Monday, March 10, 2008
I found a solution to please them and many other future advertisers, but wanted to ask for your opinion. If a majority of you think it’s a bad idea we will not do it since QuickRewards cares about your opinions. The best way to keep no minimum is to require that everyone redeeming for Paypal has a VERIFIED Paypal account. Verified account means that a real person (US or CA) owns the account because Paypal confirmed all the details with the bank or credit card company. QR does not allow international members to join (only US, CA, UK) and some international members who are not in these countries are using proxy to make us think that they are in US and redeem with a unverified Paypal account. We have been in this industry for 6 years now and know almost every trick in the book. We catch them and close their accounts right away, but if we had this rule they would not even bother joining. We always allowed members to redeem with unverified status, but I wanted to know if it will be a major issue if we no longer allowed that and required members to have a verified account?
I can even make a rule that if you don’t want to verify your paypal account (since it requires credit card or bank account connected to Paypal) you must redeem for a shipped gift certificate at least once. This way we know you have a physical US address. If you also were a long time QR member (over one year OR those that are less then one year and do more then just signups and trials (surveys and shopping)) and still have an unverified paypal we will not require you to verify it.
Why would this be a good change? It would allow us to get more advertisers (those who are afraid to advertise on incentive sites) and it would allow us to process payments faster too since we don’t need to check verified accounts as much as we would check unverified.
I would really appreciate your feedback on this. I don’t want to make a major decision without hearing what you all think about it.

Some members email us constantly saying that their offer(s) don’t credit. Even though this only applies to about 2% of our database I still decided to create this guide to help everyone out who has crediting issues.
How come stuff does not always credit?
98% of the offers in QuickRewards do credit. Sometimes the instant creditor gets jammed, but if it does that then it always catches up on what it didn't upload. If there was a crediting issue the advertiser never uploaded your transaction into their report and therefore the instant creditor has nothing to pick up. If you don't see credit that does not mean that it is the instant creditor's fault. I would say that 2:100 members are only having a crediting issue. If we see that specific offer(s) don’t credit for a majority we remove them from the site. Nothing is ever perfect and nothing tracks 100%. If 1 or 2 out of 10 offers don’t credit this isn’t a big issue. Crediting depends on a lot of things and one of the issues in the rewards program industry is that there are many competitors that have the same offers so if you are jumping from one site to another or if your security settings are too high these are the most common reasons why things don’t credit. In addition to that it can be that your computer firewall or software is blocking the cookies or your security is too high. There is no rewards program in existence where 100% of the things credit.
What does QuickRewards do when things don’t credit?
QuickRewards has one of the friendliest policies regarding manual credits. If things don’t credit that means QuickRewards never got paid for the transaction from the advertiser because your transaction never tracked. If shopping does not credit we can always email the advertisers and request manual credit. If freebie offers don’t credit we can’t email anyone since they will never pay for “freebie” offer that are missing, but we can give a courtesy manual credit at our expense(not many sites do that). Of course we can’t afford to keep paying a specific member manually credits if they constantly have errors either. If a trial offer does not credit we try to email the advertiser. If the advertisers don’t respond we always refund the amount you spent on the trial.
Here is a little guide on what you can do to get things to credit:
1) I highly suggest that you use Firefox over Internet Explorer. It has better results and more secure.
2) Make sure you have the following settings:
Internet Explorer (click on TOOLS on top -> Internet Options -> Privacy (top tab) -> Advanced)
Make sure that always allow session cookies and override cookies box is checked. Also make sure that first and third party cookies are set to allow.
Also you have to make sure that your security settings is not set to high. To do that go to TOOLS -> Internet Options -> Security tab on top -> custom level and make sure on the button it says medium or low.
Firefox (click on TOOLS on top -> Options -> Privacy tab on top)
Make sure everything is checked except for always clear my private data after I close Firefox (unless you want this checked).
3) It is VERY important to clear cookies before doing larger offers or shopping. This way if you use multiple rewards programs or if you use coupon sites to locate coupons they will not get credited for these transactions and you/QR will. You should clear cookies occasionally before using our link or more frequently if you are doing large shopping orders or larger offers. Here is how to clear cookies:
Tools on top -> Internet Options -> Delete cookies
Tools -> Clear private data -> Check cookies box and click on clear private data
Does the email you use to do offers matter?
The email you use to do offers can also play an essential role in if something credits or not. I don’t know why, but lately I seen a lot less offers crediting for those who use Yahoo. I suggest you get a gmail account(GOOGLE). This seems to be the best email system to use not only because it credits best, but because they give you a lot of space. You can get a free account by visiting this link:
If none of the two suggestions work please try the following:
Try to disable them, do one offer and enable them back. See if that offer credits. Sometimes firewalls/popup blockers block cookies
I heard a lot of members have less problems after downloading it.
“CCleaner is a freeware system optimization and privacy tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! :)”
3) Do you have Spyware Search and Destroy?
Make sure immunization settings are off. This causing crediting issues too because it blocks cookies
If an order does not credit 99% of the time it does not credit because you use a code/coupon not supplied by QR. Email us first to double check if you can use that coupon.
I hope this guide helps out a lot of members. If you have any questions feel free to post them here. If you have other suggestions on what members can do to avoid crediting issues please leave a comment!

1)Daily Surveys(Greenfield): It turns out that their offices are closed Thursday and Friday. You will receive the credits for all surveys on Monday once they come back.
2)Clicks: I read that a lot of members had issues with the clicks section being slow today. The reason is because of Black Friday the stores like Target (which is an advertiser) had too much traffic and their banners had too much loading time. What we will also do on our end is split up the banners between multiple pages. As far as crediting for clicks goes (I will repeat this again) Clorax WILL NOT credit. We don’t have a way of fixing this. Just keep refreshing until another banner shows up.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Successfully complete a daily $0.75 survey and daily OTX $0.60 survey for 3 days in a row starting Sunday until Friday. Then email us to get a $1 bonus once these surveys credit to your account! Promotion ends 11/16. You must respond to this blog by leaving a comment stating that you are interested or email us. Only those that email or respond will be able to participate.
Quick update regarding daily $0.75 Greenfield survey:
I was at a meeting with them this past Monday. She told me that around 15th they will be adding a whole new router of surveys so everyone should have better luck qualifying for them.
QuickRewards is glad to introduce a new advertiser, OTX Surveys. It works the same way as the Greenfield Daily $0.75 survey, but has its own advantages. Members can now complete two daily surveys every 24 hours ($0.75 Greenfield and $0.60 OTX). Go to the surveys section to get started!
So what’s so special about OTX?
-OTX surveys credit within hours after you successfully complete them.
-They have hundredth of surveys in rotation and all have guaranteed tracking with no tracking issues. As soon as you finish a survey it will assign a survey ID to you so that you have proof of taking a survey. Their system is very powerful that can keep track of every survey you completed and attempted to complete. We were told that they have the most surveys on Friday and weekends.
-You can try until you qualify. If you don’t qualify right away it will give you an option of qualifying for another survey. No waiting hours to try again.
OTX Survey club:
Complete 15 surveys in one month and get a $2 bonus
Complete 20 surveys in one month and get a $3 bonus
Complete 25 surveys in one month and get a $5 bonus
Please remember that we also have a Greenfield Daily Survey club:
Complete 15 surveys in one month and get a $3 bonus
Complete 20 surveys in one month and get a $5 bonus
In a nutshell survey takers, this is your opportunity to earn more daily in addition to earning more bonuses at the end of the month. Don’t forget to visit the surveys section of the site daily.

QuickRewards wants to help you find the deals!

We have new and excited news to share with you regarding the terms of our token loyalty program. We heard feedback from our members and listened to what you had to say. As a result, we are redesigning the loyalty token program starting January 2008.
Starting today your tokens will never expire however in January 2008, you will not be able to redeem them for gift cards due to the fact that some advertisers don’t allow rewarding cash for certain offers and only allow rewarding tokens. This new rule will allow us to bring in new advertisers on board. You will only be able to redeem the tokens for prizes and QR merchandise. To make it clear this change only has to do with loyalty token program. You will still earn cash on the site and redeem them for Paypal or gift cards as you do now.
Another exciting change is that frequent shoppers will earn double the tokens for everything they do. If a member who is not a frequent shopper reaches $25 a month (100% on the bar) they will also be able to double the amount of tokens they earn during that month. Those that don’t earn $25 a month will not receive double tokens and will not lose 50% of the tokens.
Finally I know when other sites create changes like this they usually increase the token values of everything. We are not other websites and care about our members. We did our homework. We put ourselves in your shoes and asked ourselves “Why should we screw the members who have been so loyal to us?”. If we change the rules they will just get frustrated and will not be loyal any more. This will not be the case here with the value increases although we will be adding new merchandise/prizes and the QR branded merchandise will have a lower point value then the non-QR branded merchandise.
I am very sure that everyone will enjoy this new change. We are one of the very few rewards programs that have a loyalty program that rewards their members an additional incentive on top of the everyday reward earnings.
If you have any questions/feedback please share it by leaving a comment. This is the type of feedback I look forward to receiving so that I can improve things on QR.

"For those of you having trouble with the flash ads - I found a way to make it work.
First off - it won't work in Internet Explorer - but in Firefox it will after you do one thing. Go to the page of daily clicks - click on "tools" at the top - then click on "clear Private data" - put a check mark in the "cookies" box and leave all the other check mark in place - then click "clear private data now". You will then need to sign back in - but once you go back to the page - all the flash icons should be there.
The reason it isn't showing up is because of the cookie used to display this icon - once it downloads onto your computer for you to see it - it disables itself - it is in your temporary cookies - so it isn't seen as a "needed" cookie to save. so it disables itself and just sits as "internet junk" on your computer. So once you clear it and then go back to the website - it sees you need the cookie - and resends it to your computer to be used as a temporary "sessions" cookie."

This Wednesday 10/24, Thursday 10/25 and Friday 10/26 is Super Wacky Crazy Quickypot Day!
Why is this one better than ever?
Due to popular demand this game is back. This time once again we will have 10 offers and 5/10 offers will be brand new that were never on QuickRewards before. The secret offer that will be worth additional 10,000 tokens will be one of these 5 new offers. We will try to have more then 5 new offers, but so far at least 5 new once were already approved.
What is Super Wacky Crazy Quickypot Day exactly?
It is works just like a regular weekly QuickyPot, but with a twist: everyone will win part of the pot! In addition to the shared winnings some lucky members will win an additional 10,000 tokens each. The more members that participate, the more tokens everyone shares. 10 offers are going to be uploaded and each of them will have each own QuickyPot jackpot that keeps increasing for three days each time a member completes the offer. The more members that participate, the bigger the jackpot grows. You may do as little as 1 or as much as 10 offers. Over the weekend we will split the individual progressive jackpot between everyone that participated. Remember that you also get paid to do that offer.

Holidays are just around the corner and just in time for the holidays she is giving all QuickRewards members 50% off on all the prices on their site when you use the special link she gave us. That’s in addition to 13% cash back QuickRewards is giving you. Start shopping today! Check out VistaPrint store on our front page when you login into your QR account.
Their prices are super low. I ordered 420 return labels and 250 colorful business cards from them. They arrived within 1 week and the products are high quality. You must click on our link to see these prices. It would cost double or even triple for me to get these business cards at a nearby office supply store.

The August/September token donation for For A Child Wish was a huge success. Thanks to all the great QuickReards members we were able to donate 3,627,000 tokens combined which came up to $217.62 (we used a rate 500,000 tokens = $30 instead of $25 + tshirt like for all members). Since I like exact numbers we are rounding this off to $250.
Thanks to all of you Tina’s niece, who has a medical condition that is causing her to go blind will be going to Disney in a few days to see Mickey. They will use the money to upgrade the hotel to be closer to Disney.
What’s next for our donation section? It’s all up to you!
Do you know a charity that needs help? If so please leave a comment with the charity name, description and url. I will collect all the information and make a poll for people to vote on every month. The most popular once will be featured in our token donation section. This way members will have a few choices to choose from every month.

We uploaded the Super Wacky Quickpot promotion bonuses to accounts. Make sure you see them. The lowest bonus was 730 tokens and the highest was 13,000 (IDEAL BITE was the 10,000 secret bonus advertiser). This is the amount of tokens each member received.
Due to the popularity of this promotion we will have one again in a few weeks, but this time all the offers featured will be brand new.
Thursday, October 4, 2007
For every other $25 gift card you request we will add $3 back into your account. For every $25 Disney gift card requested you will get $3 Disney Dollars. (Compare this to the usual $1 bonus per card! This is 12% bonus cash back for every gift card.)
All the credits must be earned from October 1st – October 14th. Unlike the previous promotions you will not be able to earn these bonuses for balances earned before October. For this promotion we only will count the credits earned from surveys, signups, clicks, signups that were done starting October 1st. So for example if you have $100 balance, but only $25 was earned in October you will only receive the $3 bonus on the $25 gift card and no bonus on the $75 balance since it was not earned this month.
Promotional cash out dates:
You may take advantage of these rates on: 10/8 and 10/15
Let us know if you have any questions.
UPDATE: We will be adding about 25 new offers within the next few days to help you with the promotion.
Please spend a minute to respond with your feedback. I want to know if you think this promotion is good or not? I need feedback to improve future promotions.

9/26 and 9/27 is our first ever Super Wacky Crazy QuickyPot Day.
It is works just like a regular weekly QuickyPot, but with a twist: everyone will win part of the pot! In addition to the shared winnings some lucky members will win an additional 10,000 tokens each. The more members that participate, the more tokens everyone shares.
How it works:
10 offers are going to be uploaded and each of them will have each own QuickyPot jackpot that keeps increasing for two days each time a member completes the offer. The more members that participate, the bigger the jackpot grows. You may do as little as 1 or as much as 10 offers. On 9/28 we will split the individual progressive jackpot between everyone that participated. Remember that you also get paid to do that offer.
1 of the 10 offers will be selected at random at the end of the contest as the featured offer. Everyone that participated in that specific QuickyPot will receive an additional 10,000 tokens in addition to the jackpot tokens that everyone shares.
NEW QR RULE CONCERNING 50% TOKEN LOSS
Starting end of September you will now have 2 months to earn $50 ($25 each month) before tokens are 50% lost. This way if you don’t reach $25 the first month you have until the end of the next month to earn earn a total of $50(for two month combined). Here is the current schedule:
September: All tokens will be carried over
October: Those who didn’t each a total of $50 between Sept + October will lose 50% of the tokens
November: All tokens will be carried over
December: Those who didn’t each a total of $50 between November + December will lose 50% of the tokens
This should give everyone more flexibility in terms especially if you don’t have enough time or good offers to do one month you can catch up the next month. FREQUENT SHOPPERS AND QR TESTERS STILL GET 100% TOKENS CARRIED OVER EVERY SINGLE MONTH EVEN IF THEY DON’T EARN $25 A MONTH.
Let us know if you have any questions/feedback/suggestions regarding the promotion or the new rule.
